information about Gray's quality.
  • Food-grade Construction

    This section speaks to the very first part of the quality process. The design review of construction documents including submittal reviews, drawing and specification reviews, peer reviews and implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to ensure all systems to be specified and installed meet the intent of the customer's Request for Proposal (RFP).

  • Deep Pits & Trenches

    This section provides an overview for the first part of the Quality Control (QC) process with the coordination between owner equipment, design and construction. It includes the pre-award process, starting with the prequalification process and pre-award meetings, used to identify qualified potential contractors.

  • Heavy Foundations

    This section covers the design element and engineering of equipment foundations to meet customers' specific needs. Specifically, it involves the proper layout of foundations based on control points and coordination between the customers' supplied equipment and site plans to ensure activities such as proper placement of anchoring points and structural areas.

  • Concrete Slabs

    This section covers the pre-construction meetings that are held on site prior to work beginning. These meetings focus on team communication and setting expectations with vendors, suppliers, contractors, third party testing agencies, manufacturers, customer representatives, safety representatives, and project management. Key meeting topics include items such as safety hazards, review of critical project details, our lessons learned, and testing requirements.

  • Equipment Setting

    This section covers field installation and our verification process developed from design coordination, industry best practices, Gray Lessons Learned and third party inspection points. The results provide proven assurance check points that are verified using our mobile auditing system. This system also provides real-time conflict and compliance resolution.

  • Process Piping

    This section covers field installation and our verification process developed from design coordination, industry best practices, Gray Lessons Learned and third party inspection points. The results provide proven assurance check points that are verified using our mobile auditing system. This system also provides real-time conflict and compliance resolution.

  • Cranes

    Covering the final step in our quality control process, the crane section details testing and verification of installed material and systems. Gray's proven punch list process ensures all appropriate codes, specifications, design details, etc., are met. This section also covers the owner turnover process.

  • Roofing/Building Envelope

Gray Construction’s Quality Management System (QMS) is based on our continuous improvement philosophy. Reflecting more than five decades of experience in the construction business, our QMS process is a living, dynamic process that begins day one of the project pre-construction phase and continues throughout the entire project.

Gray’s award-winning, cloud-hosted QMS platform integrates iPads for convenient access to project documentation procedures all across our job sites. Our collection of apps work together to provide:

  • Immediate access to project drawings, specifications, shop drawings
  • Annotation of PDF files and photographs in the field of existing conditions and real-time collaboration with design and project management resources using Web conferencing, e-mail and Voice Over IP Apps
  • Review of 3D models in the field so that actual dimensions and details can be validated before the work begins
  • Managing the project site receiving process and on-site warehouse management of materials and equipment using an App that integrates with SharePoint® in our Lexington headquarters
  • Real-time verification and validation of equipment and materials installation
